Last week Megan Fenselau of the American Numismatic Society forwarded a press release about the recent Coinage of the
Americas Conference dedicated to Augustus Saint-Gaudens. I was too slow to ask for them in time for last week's issue, but here are images of the leather pouch mentioned on the release.
During the search of the trays, ANS curatorial assistant Sylvia
Karges had come across a bronze printing block and a leather pouch, which were
apparently specifically made for Saint-Gaudens' 1905 Theodore Roosevelt Special
These had been part of an important purchase made by the ANS in 1961, of items
that had come through the family of Augustus' Saint-Gaudens' brother Louis.
